Nvidia has a shady history in this department to say the least. That is to what he was referring. They are actively nerfing games in the mobile arena as we speak.
No, they are not doing anything of the sort in the mobile arena. Where did you pull that morsel of crap from, I wonder?
Sheer luck? Do you know anything at all about programming and videogame development? Why do you think game developers send their code to NVidia and AMD prior to release? So they can get feedback and improvements, and so that they can optimise their drivers in time for release. This is an AMD sponsored game, so if it's anything like NVidia's sponsoring, AMD engineers will have been present in the studio. This means AMD optimisation was on ahnd, immediately, making it easier and quicker to optimise for AMD cards. Without getting feedback from NVidia, it is harder to optimise for their hardware.
As I said, it stinks of a rushed release and a lack of QA testing.
